ryan's plan for medicare would force seniors to pay $6400 more a year to make up for cuts in the program. this is an old democratic attack line. it's been around for a look at the bottom is it's based on an earlier version of ryan's plan. another thing i've given two pinocchios. people should always be wary of dire predictions far off any future. the city $400 figure refers to an analysis of the cbo as that of a different less generous ryan plan. goes all the way to year 2022, the cbo made no estimates of the new version except to say that beneficiaries might face higher costs. the new ryan plan was changed in other ways that would change the option of traditional medicare. he decide to set the future growth rate to medicare to the same metric used by obama and his method so there wouldn't be a difference. and the study published recently by the journal of american medical association suggests the out of pocket payment for additional medicare would be only $800 more a year under the ryan plan. that's odyssey significantly lower than the $6400. strangely president obama was
against what is in the interest of the rodney team. maybe they thought that they nominated paul ryan and would be able to take advantage with what they believe to be this massive culturally conservative white working-class cooper voters but it does not seem to be happening. they're making some progress, according to the poll. some progress among white college graduates, but it's not anywhere close to what is needed to take the state. we are not able to sort of most of the state on the face of this ongoing demographic pattern of support. florida is a state that, let's face it, if our romney campaign loses florida they're chances of winning the 2012 collection are close to zero. and right now at this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead, by several points according to latest polls. again, if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, like the pattern of support, the best group for romney to make progress in. we will look at the breakouts. we're not seeing any province being made among these voters. we're not seeing a noticeably bigger margin among
ryan. they are making some progress, according to the poll, but some progress among white college graduates, but it's not anywhere close to what needs to take place. florida is a state, let's face it, if the romney campaign loses florida, chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero. if we look at the pattern of support among the white working class, 17 points in 2008. we are not seeing any noticeably eager margin since 2008 among white working class voters. that is also being translated into similar margins in places like the corridor of the center of the state. by and large, not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. when we see again, minorities and white college graduate voters going up. the key state of virginia, among white working-class voters -- mccain carried this one in 2008. thirty-one or 32 points as they came back in 2008. to add to that, college graduate groups, obama lost by about 11 points in 2008 and he is basically about even among white college graduate voters in general. that makes it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition
of corrupting paul ryan and then embracing the ayn rand approach to economics which is just really far away from the political center, the whole percent thing that cannot romney which should be read this to some extent of being delightfully honest for today's gop is coming from in terms of their attitude towards economic and feel policy. it shouldn't have been an election that is a need for them either they haven't maximized that opportunity that is my take on what's going on and i hope you're going to check out the report and look typical maps and charts. there will be a short quiz later we want to bring up this great panel to discuss all these issues in a much more excruciating details. why don't you all come up here and get started. you want to be here -- that's fine. and i will be here. >> let me introduce the panel. senior vice president of greenburg research, one of my favorite favorite pollsters not only does she go out there and take the pulse of the nation but she also has an interest to say about it and digs beneath the surface of the data. to my right is my very favorite right-wing wh
of the romney team in wisconsin. so maybe they thought if they nominate paul ryan they would be able to take advantage what they believe to be this massive culturally conservative white working-class voters in the state but again it doesn't seem to be happening. they are making some progress, some progress among current nine but it's not anywhere close to what's needed to take the state. so they're not able to sort of master the state in the face of this demographic change and support. florida is a state that lets face it is the romney campaign loses florida, their chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero i think. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a
because of paul ryan. you are against the basic problem that if paul ryan had voted for the simpson-bowles proposal and if we had gotten through congress with president obama's support, obama would get the credit and he would be waltzing to a piece of cake reelection. i do think -- and there is the third problem. peter orszag, the head of the budget bureau wrote an op-ed in the new york times saying my own instincts, problem with the united states is too much democracy. we can't get anything done. if we actually try to do it through elections and procedures what we need are ever more expert commissions that will make decisions for us. maybe that is true but it should be recognized that if that is the solution to our problem, we should stop traveling to other countries around the world that what they need is more democracy because in fact we would have come to the conclusion that democracy doesn't really work. >> i really welcome this. my understanding is the newspapers and the constitution, grew out of a lot of study of constitutions across country and so forth so that grew out of a
budget like the ryan budget that my opponent voted for, not once but twice, which into medicare and turns it over to private insurance companies. let's make sure that what my opponent is voting for the big guys, voting for corporations to shift of jobs overseas, voting to give big oil more tax breaks, let's take care of the people here at home, make sure that we're not balancing the budget on the backs of our seniors, the backs of her veterans, and make sure that we get our budget under control by ending wasteful spending and working together. >> moderator: senator heller? heller: my opponent doesn't care about balancing the budget. she doesn't care about the debt either. she's had 14 years to talk about it. this is the first time i've ever heard her say that she doesn't like the $16 trillion in debt we have had. [inaudible] the day we've had another trillion dollars for the third year in a row. sunday is the day. imagine it. let's break it down two jobs. that's 20 million jobs at $50,000 apiece. and yet i would rather take that debt, bringing together can solve the problems we have here
big losers if the ryan from a republican budget and their medicare severance of the guarantee, which will go into effect. but we've heard from experts estimate that would mean, though you also from individuals, from ben and cheryl the stories of what it would mean to them. this is very personal. it's not just about seniors. it's about their family and what we've heard this morning from their personal stories about the statistics that the fact that the choice that the republicans are advocating is a choice for the insurance companies to choose to cover or not. seniors who lose their choice of doctors and other providers. privatizing medicare means giving profit to the carrier at the extent of our seniors. the list goes on a narcotics will touch upon some aspects of that. but i'm very proud proud of the overflow turnout that we had of our members at that hearing today and to send a very clear message. five weeks from today, medicare was on the ballot haired medicare is in jeopardy. we have a responsibility to protect. with that, please feel to a democratic witness. >> thank you, not a
, but having to cut, and we're seeing paul ryan and his friends and colleagues in the house proposing a budget that is truly astonishing and absolutely horrible, both in terms of what it does to people of the lower end, and also the fact is contains an incredible amount of further tax cutting at the top, robin hood would be turning over in his grave i think. [laughter] the president clinton face -- the preface of my book is to put things in a larger context, to talk a little bit, and when you have a chance to read the book about why we are where we are on poverty and to look ahead a little bit about what we need to do, and, of course, the harder question for all of us is how we can create a politics where these issues and many others take a different turn, a better turn, in our country. ronald reagan said we fought a war on poverty and poverty won. well well-known, everybody heard that. the first thing i want to say, and i, of course, say in the book is that ronald reagan was wrong. [laughter] about many things. [laughter] the fact is, and we need to celebrate this that the public policies tha
, the majority leader, calls people like paul ryan, who is now running for vice president. .. >> if you keep doing this, you are going to risk your speakership. the president said when i talked to him, interestingly enough, he said in fixing -- he realizes the magnitude of all of this, as does speaker boehner, key democrats, key republicans realize what it is. and the president literally said to me, i would willingly lose an election if i could solve these problems. it is that serious. tim geithner, the treasury secretary, in the book is quoted thousands of words telling the president, you have got to do something about this problem. we have to fix it. you literally, it's not that we're going to close down the government, we will close down the american economy and, in turn, the global economy. if they do not solve the issue of this runaway spending, get some way to stop borrowing in excess, he tells the president of the united states if we default on this, on our obligations and our ious, we will trigger a depression worse than the 1930s. anybody here remember the 19 1930s depression? you p
a $50,000 loan and the paul ryan budget cuts the grant and you vote against cutting the interest for the loans. where is the interest and the wanting to take care of your own par frags bruce string seen. our own is small business. i'm a small business man. yes, my employees and the people at work and their husband and wives these people are suffer. i see them all the time. what's happening in the country since 1980 is that from 1% of the population that controls 7% of the wealth, we have 1% of the population and this is not class warfare. this is fact controls 24 to 25 percent of the wealthy. there's something wrong with it. the comifses see it. we have need to have tax reform and we don't have raise taxes we have to distribute it fairly. the people who may the most have to pay their fair share. that's the way look at it. >> congressman cantor. one minute. cantor: that's a lot of talk about fairness. so many people are out of work. nearly 220 million americans are unemployed. let's go about giving them the opportunity to go back to work and begin on the careers again. the notion
on what they're supposed to be good at, which is dollars and cents. paul ryan's budget plan is going balance the federal budget in 28 years and it's incumbent on growth built into there is? come on. nobody believes this. everybody understands this has to be mutual sacrifice on the part of all of us and i'll use that mutual. and as long as it's mutual, think we'll all suck it up and fix this. but we're being led to believe we can do nothing or we don't have to do anything and we're going to fix it? no way. or that somehow -- really, growth is going to come out of nowhere? we got zero% interest rates. we're stagnant. le federal reserve. auditingauditing the federal re. wow, would love to turn on the lights and understand what is in federal reserve balance sheets. how much are they buying up? how many assets are they buying? and whatever they buy, inflates in value and in this case i think that buying up equities, certainly buying up treasuries, because if they weren't buying them, nobody else would be. >> host: one of the earlier calls came up with several points. one of them spoke to
and has a 50,000-dollar job while the ryan budget cut the pell grant in the amount the she can get and you vote against cutting the interest for those loans. where is the interest and to paraphrase springsteen, yes, small businesses my employee and the people at work and their husbands and wives, these people are suffering. i see them all the time, what is happening in this country since 1980 is that the top 1% of our population that controls the 7% of the wealth we now have 1% of the population and this is not class warfare, this is fact. it controls 2425% of the well. there is something wrong with that disparity. all the economy see it, and that means that yes, we do need to have tax reform and we have to distribute it fairly. the people that make the most have to pay their fair share to be blessed to live in this wonderful land we live in. that's the way that i look at it. [applause] >> moderator: okay, mr. cantor, one minute. cantor: what is unfair is that so many people are out of work. i don't think that's what most americans believe. what most americans believe is that we all ought
for some support. ron white came to me before he came to vice-presidential romani -- nominee ryan. i was involved on issues dealing with terrorism so i could work on that one. if you look at my record i probably have as many pieces of legislation as bipartisan as any member of congress and the idea of no budget no pay. how about the budget no job? i voted for a budget. i have worked -- i put my budget on the line. i don't know if you are arguing dianne feinstein should not have a job this year. your campaigning against her because she hasn't voted for a budget in the last 2,000 days. let's look at the record. >> moderator: did you vote for the budget in the democratic rain? lungren: i voted for the alternative. >> moderator: back to the journalist question for dan lungren. >> back to health care more specifically the affordable care act. california and a lot of other states moving forward with many physicians including the health benefit exchange and the online insurance market place. how should the government handles states like california who are moving in this direction and gettin
think he would have to retool to be sure but i think daniels, ryan, different ways, i think the bigger question is, is there something come is there a candidate to advance his agenda pushed analysis if romney loses. it's not guaranteed romney will lose. obama after three great weeks is at 50 so it's not like he is at 54 with a big margin of error. that if romney doesn't lose, i think the big question will be is there someone who kind of challenges the party on issues, particularly with immigration and maybe a little bit on social issues. >> i think, i actually think that someone who explicitly makes the case would be worse -- look at a bob mcdonnell in virginia. he is someone who clearly was socially conservative, telegraph that very clear to his voters and the thought of him as reliable, and so he was able to go after suburban voters and what have you. but because you thought of him as reliable and say, he was able to frame things effectively. i think that's a better model. compare a huntsman to george w. bush. >> and marco rubio. i can imagine jeb bush is being the intellectual leade

completely partisan rhetoric, calling paul ryan to beat up on him in public, accusing doctors of wanting to grab people and cut their tonsils out, and if you liked your health insurance, you could keep it, and if you like your doctor, you can keep them, that's been broken. calling on republicans to have dirty air and dirty water. that's not consistent with our values. all we have to do is remind people we don't want four more years of chicago style politics, and what happens if he's relegislated and he's not even restrained by the prospect of the re-election campaign? if that happens, the hhs regulation, recess appointments when the senate is not in, executive order, setting aside law and creates a new work permit without the dream act kids. whether or not you're for or against it, he act contrary to law. he's acted in a wreckless way. i don't know what the next four years would be. we have to remind people about that. i'm an optimist. i think we're going to win, win the senate as well, whether it's connie mack in florida or george allen in virginia or josh mandell in ohio where senate s

-- for one thing she's trying to tell heller paul ryan's budget plan. they like to say heller voted for the budget plan twice, once in congress and once in the senate but he was appointed to the senate last year when senator john ensign resigned. so he voted for it twice in the ryan should come out tonight looking for her to say something along the lines of dean heller wants to end medicare as we know it and turn it into a voucher program and basically try to tie him to that. you've also seen heller running a little bit and with romney's comments about the 47%, we saw how he distance himself from that saying that is and how he viewed the world. so he makes it come up as well. they will also likely bring up the treen act that's a pretty big deal in nevada and in the latino population. she has tried to make that an issuer and he has also tried to reach out to latino voters in the house and others ways of outreach. >> when it comes to looking at the polling or at least what suggested as far as this race is concerned, what is the story in nevada? >> for the polling, basically, you know,
foreign minister of jordan and a free good personal friend who will be coming as well as dr. kurt ryan who is this a sea of political science at appalachian state university and a scholar and person who's written a lot about jordan. so that should be very interesting forum. but tonight, as we gather i always express my appreciation to the exxonmobil corporation which is a founder and a dillinger and gives us a substantial contribution each year to be able to put on these programs and bring some of these guests from out of town, but tonight we are right focus on oil politics in the persian gulf and really focus on the prominence of this region in the global energy market. the persian gulf region has an estimated 60% of the world's proven oil reserves and the neighborhood of 40% of the proven gas reserves. six of the top 14 countries in terms of proven oil reserves are in the gulf. five of the country's top oil producers are also located there as well. the united states foreign policy towards the persian gulf has for decades focused squarely on ensuring the free flow of oil from the gulf to
